National Signing Day 2014: Grades and Analysis for Kansas State

Mandatory Credit: Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

Kansas State had arguable their best recruiting class in years, and there is a lot of optimism. Their 2014 recruiting class includes two four-star prospects and 12 three-star prospects.

“I think it is a good class,” K-State coach Bill Snyder said, via the Kansas City Star. “How will it rank? Who knows. A bunch of those guys are ranked extremely high by ESPN. There are 13 of our guys who are ranked, at their position, in the top 44 of the country. Some of them are high school; some of them are community college. You know me. That doesn’t mean a whole lot to me. That doesn’t mean it will be a great class or a bad class or anything else. … It will prove itself out.”

Unfortunately, they didn’t crack ESPN’s rankings, which only lists the top 40 teams. They have some players who can see playing time early though, and that is a plus.
